I was too slow with the camera. It was the leader of the pack too, leading them away from me. Eastern Goldfields Easter 2012.

Good find Alan,

A shame it took off so quick, often they stop and look back.

On the other end of the scale, I've seen some that are very dark, almost black, but a white one that's special.

cheers

A good find Alan, would add realism to your "dreamtime" waking up from your swag with that one passing through your camp!

Alan.
wish I knew how to add photo's like you clever people, as we encountered one on the CSR last year.
A very unusual site but pretty to see !
Cheers

Al,

a remarkably pale camel, to be sure, to be sure......but an albino as in the other fella's photos won't have dark pigmentation around eyes, muzzle etc.

Sorry to rain on your parade!

A mate of mine caught a very dark wild bull camel in the GVD in 2010 and after 2 days of it tagging along with his string, he rode it. A very quiet and tractable fella, indeed. He was duly named Victor (no prize for guessing why); the other two bull camels he was with had to be despatched.

Have you eaten said beasties?? I reckon they are OK on the tooth.

Cheers

PS Long time no chat. I'm still cruising around following explorers but getting paid for it now

Hi Rick good to hear from you.

So what did your mate do with the camel after? Add it to his collection I guess.
I've only eaten Camel once, Camel burger from Kings Creek Station. I didn't really find it too good, probably psychological, as I has access to other more traditional palatable food if I so desired :)

Good to hear you're earning a living doing what you love. Let me know if you need a hand, I can possibly supply references lol...also can wash dishes!!!

I found another previously unfound explorer landmark over Easter to add to my collection (can't go into details on here yet) and have a couple of explorer related things in the pipeline.

Cheers
Alan
